Valdosta woman and child missing

October 16, 2002

Valdosta - Arlester Braswell is worried about her friend and co-worker, Paula Wade.

"She loves her job and is very dependable," said Braswell. "This just isn't Paula."

Paula was last seen Saturday leaving work at Sam's Club. When she didn't show up for work for the next few days, her co-workers began to worry and called police.

"She would have called and let someone know if she was going to be out of work one day, much less three days, but we haven't heard anything," said Braswell.

Investigators believe Paula's three year old son, Brandon, may be with her. They found her Chevrolet Blazer parked at her apartment and brought it in for investigation, but so far, no leads.

"All we really know is that she was last seen October 12, and we're doing all we can to get the word out and find her," said Commander Steven Heaton of the Valdosta Police Department.

Police are in the process of issuing a search warrant for Paula's residence - where they hope to find some sort of information or clues leading to the safe discovery of Paula and Brandon Wade.

If you have any information on this case, please call the Valdosta Police Department at 229-239-3091.
